1 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:2-4 The LORD takes pleasure in those... who hope in His mercy. Psalm 147:11 Meditating on the Good News that Christ is All, and in Him All Things are Yours! This is the way to be more than a conquerer of every fear, every painful loss, every unfulfilled desire, every disappointment, every tough situation, every broken relationship, every cancer, every earthquake, every tribulation, every famine, every tsunami, every terrorist attack, every calamity, every sin, every disease, every financial catastrophe, every hope deferred, and every rejection... plead with the LORD for the help and strength of His Spirit and fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith. Forget about yourself and your circumstances and thank Jesus, praise Jesus, and boast in Jesus alone. Meditate on Him, His perfect work, Who you are in Him, what He has saved you from, and what He has saved you to enjoy. Having Jesus Christ as your all in all, and Christ in you the hope of glory are the answers to every hope and dream deferred. For He must be our greatest hope and dream Who will never leave us, forsake us, nor reject us. If you are in Christ Jesus by grace through faith, the following truths are true of you, and they will be precious to you. For to those who believe, He is precious... On the cross, the peace Jesus formerly enjoyed with His Father was turned into enmity, suffering, and pain as He suffered the wrath of the Father that you deserved because of your sin. Because of Jesus' sufferings and resurrection, you are justified and have peace with God. Romans 5:1 On the cross, Jesus endured the condemnation you deserved so that now you are free from condemnation forever. Romans 8:1 On the cross, Jesus was crushed for all your sins - past, present, and future - so that now where your sin abounds, grace abounds for you all the more. Romans 5:20 In Jesus are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. He is the perfectly righteous One and the perfectly sanctified One. And now you have Him as your wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30 Jesus was made your sin and crushed on the cross so that now you are made righteous in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21 Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and the Lamb Who was slain so that now you are righteous and can be as bold as a lion. Proverbs 28:1 Your sins were brought near to Jesus, counted as His, and He suffered for them so that now they are removed from you as far as the east is from the west. Psalm 103:12 Your sins were met head on by the Father as He punished them in Jesus on the cross so that now they have all been cast behind the LORD's back. Isaiah 38:17b The Father remembered your sins in Jesus on the cross so that now they have been blotted out for His own sake, and He will remember them no more. Isaiah 43:25 Jesus, Who is whiter than the purest light, was made filthy with your sins so that now, though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Isaiah 1:18

2 Jesus conquered every temptation He ever faced and never sinned once in the smallest way. He was obedient all the way unto death on the cross so that now, by grace through faith, you died with Him and died to the power of sin's rule over your life. Romans 6:1-6 Jesus was wounded for your transgressions; bruised for your iniquities; and the chastisement for your peace was upon Him. Isaiah 53:5 Jesus was made an enemy of God and utterly vanquished on the cross so that now your enemies should not rejoice over you. For when you fall, you shall arise; when you sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light to you. You shall bear the indignation of the LORD because you have sinned against Him, until He pleads your case and executes justice for you. He will bring you forth to the light; You will see His righteousness. Micah 7:8-9 God did not merely pardon your sins or pass over your transgressions. Instead, He chose not to restrain His anger or have mercy on His own Son, but He delighted to crush Jesus on the cross in your place. Therefore, your God is unlike any other, pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage. He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in mercy. He will again have compassion on you, and will subdue your iniquities. He will cast all your sins into the depths of the sea. Micah 7:18-19 On the cross where His Son hung, the Father showed no grace or mercy; displayed the full measure of His anger; exhibited no lovingkindness; and did not relent from doing harm to His own Son so that now He might be gracious and merciful to you; slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness; One who relents from doing harm against you because Jesus paid it all, taking all the harm upon Himself. Jonah 4:2 Jesus, Who alone earned the right to have the highest honor in the Father's eyes, was abandoned on the cross so that now you might be kept as the apple of God's eye. Deuteronomy 32:10b Jesus died in the place of the wicked Barabbas and in the place of all those wicked ones His Father had given him so that now the Father might have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Ezekiel 33:11 On the cross, Jesus was cast out and forsaken by the Father so that now if you come to Jesus, He will by no means cast you out. John 6:37 On the cross, Jesus perished in your place so that now if you believe in Him, you will not perish, but you will have everlasting life. John 3:16 Jesus faced the fierceness of God's infinite wrath on the cross so that now you have been saved from this everlasting wrath in hell where the fire is unquenchable and where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Mark 9:43; Matthew 8:12; 25:46 Jesus has the greatest mind in the universe. No one can instruct Him! His mind is the most wise, the most knowledgeable, the most keen, and the most humble. And in Him, you have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16 Jesus is the temple Who was torn down and rebuilt in three days. He is the most beautiful, the most glorious, the most precious temple of the LORD. And by grace through faith, you are united to Him. You are the temple of the Holy Spirit; you were bought with a price; and you are not your own for Jesus purchased you with His own blood. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Jesus was established in strength like no other, and He had the Holy Spirit upon Him in power and without measure. And you have been established in Christ, sealed, and you have been given the Holy Spirit in your heart as a guarantee of your inheritance. 2 Corinthians 1:21; Ephesians 1:13-14

3 Jesus was crucified and died, but He rose again in power and glory to newness of life, conquering sin, death, and Satan. And you have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer you who live, but Christ lives in you. Galatians 2:20 Jesus embodied and lived out every spiritual blessing imaginable, and you have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 1:3 Jesus is the holiest of the holy and the most blameless of the blameless. And you have been chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, that you should be holy and without blame before Him in love. Ephesians 1:4 Jesus is the preeminent Son of God, and you have been predestined to adoption as sons of God. Ephesians 1:5; 1 John 3:1 Though He died on the cross, Jesus is alive! You too have been made alive together with Christ. Ephesians 2:5 Jesus came down from the heavenly places to be mocked, mistreated, beaten, and killed because of your sin so that now you have been made to sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:6 Jesus' access to the Father was cut off on the cross so that now you have access by one Spirit to the Father. Ephesians 2:18 You have boldness and access to God with confidence through faith in Him. Ephesians 3:12 Darkness overcame Jesus on the cross so that now we have been delivered from the power of darkness and conveyed into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:13-14 Jesus suffered for you so that now Christ is in you. Colossians 1:27 Jesus emptied Himself on the cross so that now you are complete in Christ. Colossians 2:10 In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus deeply feared the wrath of God, and He feared being excluded from the presence of His Father so that now you have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 Jesus is the perfectly sanctified One. In Him, you are sanctified and one with the sanctifier, therefore Jesus calls you his brother. Hebrews 2:11 On the cross, Jesus was cut off from God's grace, obtained no mercy, and found no help from anyone in His greatest time of need so that now you can come boldly to the throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16 All the fullness of the Godhead dwells in Jesus bodily, and through His perfect work, you have been given exceedingly great and precious promises, that through them you may be partakers of the divine nature. 2 Peter 1:4 Jesus is the saltiest salt and the brightest light of the world so that now, in Him, you are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Matthew 5:13-14 Jesus is a friend of tax collectors and sinners, and now He calls you His friend. John 15:15

4 Jesus produced the most beautiful, sweetest, and longest lasting fruit through His life, death, and resurrection so that now you are chosen and appointed by Him to go and bear lasting fruit. John 15:16 Jesus was the most submissive, joyful, righteous, and obedient slave of God to ever live on earth so that now you are a slave of righteousness and a slave of God. Romans 6:18, 22 Jesus left all His glorious, heavenly inheritance in order to come to earth, take on human flesh, and suffer for your sins. In Him, you are an heir of God and a joint heir with Christ. Romans 8:17 Jesus gave His body to be beaten, hit, spit upon, and crucified so that now you are a member of the body of Christ. Ephesians 5:30 Through Jesus' death and resurrection, the first fruits of the new creation have arrived so that now, in Christ, you are a new creation. 2 Corinthians 5:17 Jesus was the greatest saint Who ever lived, so that now, in Him, you also are a saint. Ephesians 1:1 Jesus was holy and righteous like no other so that now, in Him, you are holy and righteous too. Ephesians 4:24 Jesus was exposed, naked, and abandoned on the cross so that now your life is safely hidden with Christ in God for all eternity. Colossians 3:4 Jesus, the beloved Son in Whom the Father was well pleased, was made an object of wrath on the cross so that now you are the elect of God, holy and beloved. Colossians 3:12 Jesus, the only true Person of God Who alone lived a fully pleasing life in the Father's sight, was the Priest Who interceded with His own body on the cross so that now you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, the people of God. 1 Peter 2:9-10 On the cross, all Jesus' strength was dried up and consumed. He was a man Who had no strength so that now you can do all things through Christ Who strengthens you. Philippians 4:13 On the cross, Jesus did not even receive a cup of water when He needed it so that now you have all your needs supplied according to God's riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 On the cross, Jesus seemed to lose all confidence when He cried out, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?!" so that now you have the LORD as the strength of your life and as your confidence. Psalm 27:1; Proverbs 3:26 In His glorious death and resurrection, Jesus triumphed over all His and your enemies so that now you shall always be led by God to triumph in Christ. 2 Corinthians 2:14 In the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross, Jesus endured and triumphed over the greatest worries, fears, and anxieties ever known to man so that now you can cast all your worries, fears, and anxieties on God because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7 On the cross, Jesus was forsaken and left utterly alone so that now you are never alone for Christ is always with you, and He will never leave you nor forsake you. Matthew 28:20; Hebrews 13:5 On the cross, Jesus manifested the ultimate picture of the greatest strength wrapped in the most lowly weakness so that now you should boast in your weaknesses that the power of Christ may rest upon you because His grace is sufficient for you, for His strength is made perfect in weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9

5 Through the cross of Christ, God brought the greatest good out of the greatest evil so that now, though you are not a lot of things you should be, you can take heart since God has chosen the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are so that no flesh should glory in His presence. 1 Corinthians 1:28-29 Through the resurrection of Jesus, God did what is impossible for man. Therefore, your God is the God of the impossible so that now, in any and every hopeless situation, against all hope you can have hope in your great God of the impossible! Your God is the God of the resurrection so you can grow strong in your faith, giving glory to God! Romans 4:16-21 Through the cross, Jesus purchased all you need for life, ministry, and godliness so that now you have your sufficiency from God, and He is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 3:5, 9:8 On the cross, Jesus was a fragrant offering and a well pleasing sacrifice to God so that now you have God working in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. Philippians 2:13 On the cross, Jesus more than conquered all your enemies so that now you will do valiantly through God for it is He who shall tread down your enemies. Psalm 60:12 On the cross, Jesus was shut out of the glorious, all satisfying presence of His Father because of your sin so that now you will have fullness of joy and pleasures forevermore one day forever in God's very presence. Psalm 16:11 On the cross, Jesus endured the hardest and most infinite affliction in your place so that now your momentary and light affliction, which is for a moment, is working for you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, and your present sufferings are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in you. 2 Corinthians 4:17; Romans 8:18 In His life and death, Jesus shed many tears; endured much pain and sorrow on your behalf; and resisted every sin all the way to an obedient death on the cross so that now you have certainty that one day you shall have no more tears, no more sorrow, no more pain; there shall be no more death and no more sin. Revelation 21:4 The Father's love for the Son is infinitely great. Yet He did not spare His own Son but delivered Him up for us all. Therefore, since He has given us the greatest gift imaginable in His Son, surely He will also freely give us all things. Romans 8:32 In His life and death, Jesus experienced tribulation, distress, persecution, hunger, thirst, nakedness, peril, the nails and spear at the cross, and the infinite wrath of God so that now you shall not be separated from the love of Christ for any of these reasons or for any other reason in the universe. No trial in your life should ever make you doubt God's love for you. Even in all your hardships, God's love is strong toward you. He has given the greatest evidence of His love for you at the cross when He crushed His one and only beloved Son in your place. Romans 8:35-39 On the cross, the Father did not come to Jesus' aid in any way so that now you have certain and unshakable promises causing you to be strong, courageous, and fearless because God is with you, and He is your God and will strengthen you and help you and uphold you with His righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 On the cross, Jesus was excluded from the joy of the LORD so that now you will one day enter into the joy of your LORD. Matthew 25:23

6 Jesus went to the cross according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, and His enemies were gathered against Him to do whatever God's hand and His purpose determined before to be done. Therefore, since God is in absolute control of the most wicked action in the universe (the crucifixion of Jesus), and He worked it for your good, you can rest assured in the following truths about God's absolute sovereignty working for your good in every and all situations. Acts 2:22-23, 4:27-28 Your hairs are numbered and if not even a little bird can fall to the ground apart from God's will, you should fear nothing for God loves you much more than little birds. Matthew 10:29-31 In His book they all were written - every detail of every day fashioned by Him for your good before even one came into being. Psalm 139:16 All your times are in His hands. Psalm 31:15 All things work according to His will. Ephesians 1:11 As your days are, so shall your strength be and underneath are the everlasting arms. Deuteronomy 33:25; 27 Your right hand is held by God, and He will guide you with His counsel. Psalm 73:23-24 All things, even those things meant for evil against you, are working for your good. Romans 8:28 Because of Jesus' perfect life and death, if you sin, you have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 1 John 2:1 If you confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive you your sins and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 On the cross, the Father was against Jesus, condemning Him for your sake, so that now you can never be condemned because God is absolutely for you forever and no one can be against you. Romans 8:31 In His death and resurrection, Jesus more than conquered all powers, enemies, and evils so that now you are more than a conqueror through Him who loved you. Romans 8:37 On the cross, Jesus was crushed by God with the equivalent of an everlasting punishment so that now you are loved by God with an everlasting love. Jeremiah 31:3 On the cross, Jesus was cut off from the fullness of God's house and drank from the river of His wrath so that now God satisfies you with the fullness of His house and gives you drink from the river of His pleasures. Psalm 36:8 On the cross, the Father delighted to bruise the Son so that now God delights in you and as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so shall your God rejoice over you. Isaiah 62:4-5 On the cross, the Father rejoiced to punish the Son so that now God will rejoice over you with gladness, and He will quiet you with His love. Zephaniah 3:17 Jesus, the greatest treasure in the universe, was abandoned on the cross so that you might be God's special treasure in Christ. Psalm 135:4 On the cross, the Father showed no mercy to the Son, so that now you might give the Father pleasure when you hope in His mercy. Psalm 147:11

7 On the cross, Jesus' appearance was marred beyond human form. There were no smiles on His face and no laughter came from His mouth so that now you may smile at all your enemies and laugh at the future because of the salvation He purchased for you. 1 Samuel 2:1; Proverbs 31:25 On the cross, the delight and desire of Jesus' heart, His very own Father, abandoned Him so that now if you delight yourself in the LORD, you will receive the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4 While Jesus was on the cross, darkness was over the whole land and the light of the world was extinguished so that now one day you might shine like the sun in the kingdom of your Father. Matthew 13:43 On the cross, the Father withheld all good things from the Son so that now if you seek the LORD, you shall not lack any good thing. Psalm 34:10 On the cross, the Father pursued the Son with anger and condemnation so that now your heavenly Father, like the Hound of Heaven, is pursuing you relentlessly with goodness and mercy all the days of your life. Psalm 23:6 God the Father and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ did all of this ultimately for the praise of His glory and grace! Ephesians 1:6, 12, 14. So in the face of all failures, heartbreaks, hopes deferred, and rejections, be still and know that Christ is all! Rest in Him, enjoy Him, and delight in Him above all other delights. Stand secure in the truth of who you are in Jesus Christ. In Him, you are gloriously saved, perfectly safe, and most deeply satisfied for all eternity! 1 1 This phrase "saved, safe, and satisfied" comes from John Piper's sermon, "Funeral Message for William S. H. Piper," March 9, 2007, Message_for_William_S_H_Piper/. Accessed 28 May 2009.
